My Neptue dryer was running and starting making a grinding noise. It stopped and will not go back on. The panel will light up but will not start when pressed. Any ideas?

SOURCE: grinding noise in Maytag dryer

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: http://www.partselect.com/ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Kenmore dryer stopped running


Hi, I can determine a motor bad by the noise. Does it hum while holding the start button or is it a grinding deep sound? It can sound like the motor starts slow but once it gets going, it is ok. Sometimes the house lights will dim when the motor statrs going bad.
Let me know if I can help you further.

Dryer Problem


Grinding noise most likely due to the front drum bearings worn out - result is the metal drum making contact with the rim of the from panel.

This requires a total disassembly of the dryer to investigate & likely replacement of the front slipper pads (dry nylon slipper bearings 4 x ).

This will only be a succesful repair if you stopped using the dryer the moment it started screeching.

If you have let it run, the metal-on-metal will have gouged the edge of the drum and will rip up any new replacement bearing pads.

Do not attempt this unless you are a very competent handyperson. Many screws lost, cut fingers and swear words will ensure if you are not confident in approaching this job, so either toss the dryer or get a competent repairman to do the job.
